(February 5, 2019) — The Thousand Trails Morgan Hill RV Resort in Morgan Hill, Calif., evacuated its guests Monday afternoon shortly after the nearby Uvas Reservoir reached capacity and began to spill over its banks, according to NBC 7.

The Santa Clara Valley Water District said there is no imminent flood risk downstream. “They said we had to leave,” Morgan Hill resident Lambert Lorette said of the Thousand Trails owned campground.

Water district officials later reported water flow was decreasing. Uvas Reservoir, along with Almaden and Vasona reservoirs, have all reached capacity due to recent storms in the region.

This park floods pretty much anytime there is more than a 1/2″ of rain or better. They reopened after 2 years due to the bridge leading into the park washed out.
